Tidal energy is a major growth area, with a potential global electricity generation estimated up to 100 gigawatts.
We’re bringing customer oriented proven, reliable and efficient technologies to the market with particular attention to Operation and Maintenance. For example, installation of our turbines doesn't require specialist installation or maintenance vessels.
We have dedicated tidal teams in Nantes (France) and Bristol (UK), where we are developing the next generation of tidal energy technology – ensuring Alstom is at the forefront of this rapidly-expanding field and complementing our current work in offshore wind.
We are positioned at the forefront in design, development and manufacture of tidal stream turbines for the capture and conversion of tidal energy to electrical power. Following our acquisition of Tidal Generation Ltd (TGL), we plan to deploy demonstration arrays ahead of full commercial production.
